Free Agent With Every Box of Cornflakes

Some recent free agent pickups:

a) The Connecticut Sun pick up Svetlana Abrosimova.
b) The Los Angeles Sparks pick up Margo Dydek.

Abrosimova can only add to the Sun. As for Dydek, I'm glad to know that the Dream don't have the monopoly on tall, clumsy centers.

Great pickup for the sun for playoffs. Really weird pickup for the sparks given that they needed better guard play, not a really slow tall post. If this means cooper puts parker at pg then prepare for sparks to collapse.

My conclusion is that Dydek was signed to give Leslie and Parker some post-Olympic rest. However, we don't even know if Dydek has returned to her pre-pregnancy form...such as it was. Great if you need blocked shots; not so great if you need anything else.

I really can't see Parker at PG either. I've been wrong before, but I don't see the three of them on the court at the same time. (But if they're all having great days expect them to hold some height-challenged team to 20 points.)
